Crystal City

When Seattle public radio reporter Joshua McNichols heard that Crystal City was one of most likely places for Amazon’s second headquarters, he put on his son’s virtual reality headset and took a tour.

What he saw reminded him of a certain neighborhood in Seattle, one he knew well as a former bike messenger and architecture student — in the years before Amazon chose it for its first headquarters.

What are the parallels between South Lake Union and Crystal City? And why might the latter be even more attractive to Amazon?
